New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates
 
https://www.instagram.com/p/CShPawGjctM

New DMB COVID-19 protocols finally came out. Been waiting for this for a while now. Will definitely feel much safer at shows. Was hoping they would require vaccines, but this is a good start.

Quote:

Beginning with Dave Matthews Band’s August 21st show in Columbia, MD at Merriweather Post Pavilion, all ticket holders for all announced dates must provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48-hours prior to entry.* Children under the age of 12 may attend the concert if they provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of the show. Ticket holders using a negative test for entry will not need to get subsequent tests if they are attending multiple shows at the same venue.

We encourage all fans to wear a mask, especially when social distancing is not possible. Specific venue websites will be updated shortly with updated protocols.**

Dave Matthews Band is grateful to be back out on the road playing live music again. We are a fully vaccinated band and touring crew. Let’s keep each other safe; please join us in getting vaccinated!

*Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD will be requiring proof of full vaccination or a negative test taken within 72 hours of the event.

Fiddler’s Green in Greenwood Village, CO will require proof of full vaccination (final dose at least 14 days prior to event); a negative test will not be accepted for entry.

Dave Matthews Band’s shows at Madison Square Garden will require proof of full vaccination (final does at least 14 days prior to event); a negative test will not be accepted for entry, in compliance with local government mandates.

** Guidelines for DMB’s shows in Durant, OK and Columbus, OH will be announced shortly.

Thank god. Maybe this will convince some people who have been on the fence to finally get vaccinated and get this world moving closer to normal.

This might have prevented me from getting Covid in WPB. Hopefully more of the venues become vaccinated only.

It's about time. Vaccine or negative test is a no-brainer at this juncture and gives you options no matter if you want to get the shot or not.

If anyone thinks this isn't fair or infringes on their freedom... find something else to do.

Definitely glad they are doing this- but the kicker will be how many people will adhere to the masks recommendation. I’ll be masking up for my shows this fall. We as vaccinated people will also catch and spread Delta, so a good N95 may help a lot. Hope more people start wearing them again.

A good decision, even though it kind of sucks for the people who aren’t vaccinated.

not a chance in hell.

I'm vaxxed, i'll show proof. I'll even get tested before just out of safety, but no chance.

true. Not that much extra effort at all assuming thereís a testing site nearby.

Guessing a mask requirement is coming fairly soon as well. :/

How do you prove your vaccination? Is there something you submit before attending? Bring card to the show? Bring picture of your vax card?

Would prefer not to bring my card out of fear of losing it. What options are there? I've heard there's something you can submit beforehand and they verify?

Woohoo! Maybe this will open up some MSG tix....

Re: New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates
 
I understand the sentiment, but at the same time, if you can't ever prove vaccination because you're too afraid to take it somewhere out of fear of losing the card, what value does the card really have in the first place?

if the venueís state has an app similar to the Excelsior Pass in NY, Iíd imagine that would be accepted.


Best to contact the venue directly to find outÖ

there's these things called phones that take pictures and store them for immediate access wherever you are!

is MSG accepting cell phone pics of vax cards for entry?

I just don't find it ideal to carry something that doesn't fit in my wallet or will bend in my pocket to 30+ shows the rest of the year. Appreciate the guidance on phone picture or a pass through the venue. I'll look into it.

Need a costanza wallet!

Re: New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates
 
When did this whole "vaccinated people can still contract and spread the illness, so it doesn't work" become the anti-vax stance? It's just recently with Covid19, correct?

This is literally how every single vaccine works.

Anti-vaxxers are a real weird bunch.

My wife took our cards to Kinko's where the shrunk them to wallet size and laminated for free.

I looked into it and apparently the answer is yes, you can use the smartphone (at least for the upcoming Eagles concert at MSG, if you're going to some other show there you'll want to confirm but I assume it's the same for all shows)

problem solved!

Re: New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates
 
MSG: For all guests, your documentation needs to be directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination or test, and you can display your proof on your smartphone or present a physical copy. In addition, The Garden welcomes the New York State Excelsior Pass (https://epass.ny.gov), which provides secure, digital proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results. To help us ensure a fast and efficient entry, we ask that guests using the Excelsior Pass Wallet app download the app in advance and log in prior to your visit so you have access to your documentation before arriving at the venue.

Why America doesn't have a universal Digital Vaccine Certificate yet is mind boggling.

Certainly the shift toward vaccine/test-only events like this will push the demand for something, right?

I'd rather it push the demand for the actual vaccine itself, but if it also pushes demand for a digital vaccine passport, all the better

YouNeverKnow25 08-13-2021 01:16 PM

Re: New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates
 
has anyone ITT been to a show yet that has this requirement? I am just wondering how it affects the lines to get in. My educated guess is: "quite strongly, in a negative way," but wondering what real life experience shows us.
